Designed specifically for children between 6-8, we also see potential for children both younger and older to benefit too. Well worth the money.


Some problems are worded in unusual ways. This challenges your child to think outside of the norm but you will want to be available to answer their questions until they fully understand what is required to answer thus avoiding unnecessary frustration.
